That very important four-legged family member needs ample exercise — especially if cooped up all day on a road trip. Let 'em cut loose from the leash and run free at Virginia's Dog Parks in Hampton Roads!
Dog Parks are gaining popularity — not only for the exercise but for the socialization — for dogs as well as for dog lovers!
Human companions must stay on site, supervise and pick up after their dogs. Dogs are expected to be well-behaved and have proof of shots . . . Good Dog!
Chesapeake City Parks have three dog parks! Water and restrooms are accessible. Parks are off-leash, fenced-in parks for dogs. Features include benches, water fountain for dogs and owners, poop-scoop bags and covered trash cans!
Colonial Place/Riverview Dog Park features water bowls for pooches and benches for their owners as well as pooper scoopers and baggies.
Bea Arthur Dog Park features a large, 1-acre area with a double-gated entrance, water station, a toy bin, shaded picnic area and an easy access ramp for dog-paddling in the Elizabeth River!
Waller Mill Dog Park charges just $2 a day for out-of-town visitors. If you're lucky enough to live in Williamsburg, it's only $10 for the entire year!
Ridgway Bark Park is a fenced-in, 3/4-acre park where dogs "play well together, ignorant of their differences in size, breed, and temperament."
Sandy Bottom Bark Park sits on lake-front property and offers ample space to "socialize, sniff around, and leave their own special marks!"
Richmond - Ruff House Dog Park in Rockwood Park offers two kennels with benches, water and close parking for you and your dog to play.
